Where to find Vancouver's best cheesecake

Jul 22 2016, 6:01 am

No other dessert quite hits the spot like a fresh-baked, deliciously creamy cheesecake. With a bounty of bakeries and dessert cafes serving up slices of this indulgent offering, we have compiled a list of where to find the best cheesecake in Vancouver.

Lisa Lou’s Chocolate Bar

In addition to a mouthwatering array of chocolate treats, this recently opened cafe on Main Street serves delicious home-baked cheesecake. Offered either by the slice or whole (call ahead to order), Lisa Lou’s cheesecake comes in rotating flavours like Sour Cherry, Caramel Pecan, and Blueberry Lemon, which is slightly tart and delightfully smooth.

Small Victory Bakery

Boasting a selection of house-baked cheesecakes, Small Victory is the perfect spot to enjoy this indulgent offering. While the bakery’s blueberry and pistachio cheesecakes are reliably good, the salted caramel version is to die for; it’s wonderfully creamy, has a crumbling crust and is topped with a sticky caramel sauce. Whole cakes as well as individual servings are offered.

Cheesecake etc.

As the name suggests this Granville Street bakehouse offers patrons a varied selection of drool-worthy cheesecakes. Light in texture and rich in taste, the original cheesecake topped with BC strawberries is one of the bakery’s most popular slices. Cheesecake purists should stick their fork into the crustless cheesecake, which promises to be the lightest, smoothest, and creamiest cheesecake you’ll ever taste.

Priding themselves on having the best cheesecake in Vancouver, Trees Organic Coffee and Roasting House offers multiple cheesecakes, including a classic Blueberry and a creamy New York style, served with a side of whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. The roasting house also serves non-conventional flavours like Mocha, Maple Walnut, Chocolate and Cherry, Key Lime, and Raspberry Chocolate.
